|Model Description||This model is a simple, basic
on the standard SPICE diode with the addition of reverse
reverse recovery, the diode current exponentially decays
to the reverse
saturation current, independent of the diode reverse
Upon request, a SPICE subsircuit is available for this Basic Diode Model.
|Model Parameters||Model parameters are the same
those of the
standard SPICE diode model with the addition of the
"Tau". The standard SPICE diode includes only the
parameter "TT". Both "TT" and "Tau" are required to
Data sheets frequently give measurements of Qrr
trr. Approximate conversions to TT and Tau
This model has been extensively used.
Parameter extraction is available.
